AS you know I am close to Sackatoga partner Margaret Phillips. Shortly after the Champagne win, her husband Attorney Bruce Phillips (a guy who never had a bad day) passed from a sudden heart attack at age 60.
I have known Bruce and Margaret for over 35 years (Margaret sold my EF Hutton office our 1st phone system ---AT&T----around 1980. Every year Margaret sponsored a party at the Spa to celebrate Bruce's birthday. 50 or more N.E. Pennsylvanians would attend.
I cannot tell you the Sadness and the Joy I feel for Margaret today.
She sent me a paddock photo pre-race and, being totally unbiased, Tiz looked the part. A handful in the barn who attacks everyone and everything. But he sure can run.
Hoping Tiz stays healthy and fit.
Sure am interested in the TG # he ran today.
Fairmount met Jack Knowlton- the GP of Sackatoga. But that is a story for him to tell....It's a good one. LOL
